A DELIVERY driver allegedly ran over and killed a pet cat in front of a crying kid, shocking video shows.
The driver slowed the black estate car to allow the cat to cross the road before suddenly accelerating into him.
Mr Bumbles, 18, who was deaf, died three days after being hit in Great Plumstead, Norfolk, last month.
Owner Paul Walker, 58, said: "It was cold-hearted. He obviously didn't have any compassion for the cat.
"I can forgive someone accidentally running the cat over but I think he got impatient and saw the cat wasn't going to move out the way and just ran over him.
"It shows no heart and no soul. He saw the cat squirming around in the road. He was in a horrible state."

Furious neighbours confronted the driver, who mounted the curb to avoid the cat's injured body as he drove off.
One woman says: "This cat is going to die now. Seriously? And you don't give a s***.
"Did you know you just- He don't give a s***!"
The man responds: "What? I stopped. I'm really sorry but I'm not watching in the bottom of cars."

Paul spent £1,600 on vet bills trying to save Mr Bumbles, who suffered injuries including a broken pelvis, gauged eye and fractured spine.
He adopted the cat with wife Suzette, 56, two years ago. He added: "He was such a beautiful cat. We're just devastated he's not here.
"Mr Bumbles was in good health apart from a heart murmur.
"He was initially called socks because of his white feet, then the children in the estate named him Mr Bumbles because he used to bumble around.
"He would greet you at the bottom of the stairs in the morning and sit on your lap.
"He was quite special – a proper gentleman.
